    Default USERNAMES

    This topic has been discussed previously but we would like to encourage people to join the forum under their own full name as opposed to a pseudonym. The aim being to create a closer and more personal community. It perhaps also encourages people to be themselves and also think about what they write etc. I know the first thing i ask when someone introduces themselves is "what's your name?"
    Over time active members get to know the names of other members however if you are new you only know them by their username, which also perhaps makes people not feel like they are "in the know" so to speak.
    At this stage it isn't mandatory although perhaps this may change in the future.

    If you are already a member and would like to have your username changed to your real name, just PM one of the Mods
    Cheers, Dave

    You might have noticed that I am trying to "lead by example" Going to miss my "wingsonwire" alias but I think this change will make the site an even better community than it already is Hope others feel the same.

    There is the matter of personal privacy here, but for those users that it bothers, they don't have to change their name anyway :P

    You may as well go ahead and change mine to Bec, I don't see why not :P It's on my blog anyway, though I don't see a need for the last name, you can make one up if you want
    Reposts welcome =)
